Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell in her office and fractured three ribs. The 85-year-old liberal justice was admitted to a hospital Thursday.

Ginsburg’s health has been a matter of intense speculation in recent years. The court’s oldest member, Ginsburg has survived multiple bouts with cancer, and in 2014 underwent a procedure to have a stent placed in her right coronary artery. …

It is not the first time that Ginsburg has fractured her ribs while on the court. In June 2012, Ginsburg fractured two ribs in a fall and did not disclose the injury to the public until months later. The court said at the time that despite the fracture, Ginsburg “did not skip a beat.”

People concerned about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s fall are offering their ribs and organs.

What sort of system of government is it where the health of an old and frail functionary is so important? As primitive as a monarchy. This is not how political power should be handled.

This only arises because leftist judges in the US insisted on effectively legislating from the bench, to implement items on the left’s agenda that are not sufficiently popular to be voted into real legislation by the people’s elected representatives. If the judges just did their job, as as prescribed by the founding fathers, this silliness over health scares would not be occurring — because any competent judge could do the job.
